Sick of Stupid Tour at Zanies 1/20/2016

“Sick of Stupid” is an intelligent, comedic look at all things southern. We believe that people are thirsty for an intelligent voice with a southern accent. “The South” is made up of Miami, Austin, Atlanta, The Research Triangle, New Orleans, Nashville and so many more wonderful, cultured, beautiful cities and those cities are full of intelligent, progressive young people who don’t want to grouped in with Duck Dynasty or Larry the Cable Guy. The south has somehow garnered a reputation that lumps us all into wearing camouflage and hating gay people. There exists a large portion of the population that doesn’t want to be lumped into those categories. Those folks are our demographic. We believe they will love what we have to say. We believe that the antithesis of the “Blue Collar Comedy Tour” is something that hasn’t been done yet and the first people to do it successfully can expect a windfall. Intelligent southern comedy exists. We aren’t the first to do it. It is a genre but it is a genre and a concept without an owner. No one has claimed it. No one has mastered it successfully and no one has branded it or taken it to the mainstream and pop. We believe we can be the guys to do just that.

Here’s more info about the comics in the show:

Tom Simmons was born in New York and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. He is married to the love of his life, Serena, for more than a decade. Together, they have a son named Owen. “We figured, that’s what we would be doing for the rest of our lives.” Before Owen’s birth in 2004, Tom and Serena toured the continent in their RV, devoted to perfecting Tom’s stage act and putting their relationship to the test. The Simmons now live in Greensboro, North Carolina, the “epicenter of comedy”, as Tom describes it with a huge grin. “We bought a house from the seventies, and there’s lots of work to do. All I need now is a husband.”

Stewart Huff was born in Campbellsville, Kentucky and grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee. He has been performing comedy for over 15 years, beginning when he decided to drop out of college to become a writer. Currently touring theatres, comedy clubs and special events across the country, Huff reaches past the norm for his genuine — and genuinely unexpected — comedy. His knack for embracing the foibles of humanity and his refreshing originality make him as likeable as he is hilarious. A storyteller at heart, Huff continues to amaze with his clever material and personal wit.

Huff has performed in comedy clubs nationally and internationally, including the Improv in Los Angeles and New York, the Punchline in Atlanta and the Funny Bone in Omaha, as well as countless others.

A finalist in the 2006 Boston Comedy Festival, Huff was also invited to perform in the HBO Las Vegas Festival, where his act can be viewed on pay-per-view. He’s been featured in/on the Wall Street Journal, NPR and Nuvo and invited to festivals and conventions all over the country.

He currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia with his girlfriend. There he drops off the various items he collects while on the road, including an antique barber chair, countless vintage photographs, and an extensive collection of LP’s. She likes this.

He is featured in the documentary Road Comics: Big Work on Small Stages, which was released in Fall 2009.

Cliff Cash comes from the religious and conservative south and adds a new twist to stand-up that you won’t soon forget. Finding absurdities in everyday culture, media, politics and dogma; Cash draws comparisons that others miss. Whether it’s through one of his characters or voices, an angry rant or a satirical rap song, Cliff will make you question what you accept as normal.

A rising star on the comedy circuit, Cash is quickly climbing the ranks. He is featuring all over the country with multiple sets and hours of material, being accepted to the Cape Fear Comedy Festival three years in a row, the Norfolk Comedy Festival and winning Port City’s Top Comic 2013, Comedy Zone’s Almost Famous competition 2013 and chosen as one of 30 semifinalists nationwide in Comedy Central’s UpNext competition/talent search.

He’s opened for comedy all stars like Rory Scovel, Kyle Grooms, Todd Glass, Michael Che, Judah Freidlander, Moshe Kasher, Lachlan Patterson and many others. Cash has also recently been heard on XM radio and seen on Laughs tv show on FOX. Pull up a seat and enjoy the show because Cliff Cash has found his home in standup comedy.

Nashville StandUp’s “Broken Record Comedy Show” Shatters Previous GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS Title

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Apr. 23, 2015 — Nashville StandUp’s “Broken Record Comedy Show” ended its 184 hour, 16 minute run at 4:20am April 20, 2015, setting the new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for: “LONGEST STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW – MULTIPLE COMEDIANS.”

Labeled as, “The Greatest Dumbest Thing We’ve Ever Done!” The show ran non-stop at The East Room in Nashville, Tennessee, beginning Sunday, April 12, 2015 at 12:04pm with DJ Buckley and ending Monday April 20 at 4:20am with Chad Riden.

The previous 80-hour record had been held by the Laugh Factory in Hollywood, CA, for a show which ran from 6 to 9 December 2010. That show included 170 different acts by 150 comedians.

The 80-hour mark was surpassed on Wednesday, April 15, 2015 at 8:04pm while DJ Buckley was performing. Official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ adjudicator Michael Empric was on site to announce the new record saying, “I’m so excited to announce that with 80 hours and two minutes, you guys have set a new Guinness World Record!” The standing room only crowd at The East Room erupted into cheers, carrying co-host D.J. Buckley on their shoulders with the framed certificate from GUINNESS raised high above his head.

As the crowd settled down, co-host Chad Riden performed a set, saying he did not want the show to ever end. “If we never stop, nobody can ever beat us unless they already started before we did or we die first.” The show continued through the entire duration of Nashville’s Wild West Comedy Festival, which was conducive to celebrity drop-in sets from Hannibal Buress, Rory Scovel, Al Jackson, Eric Andre, Nate Bargatze, Keith Alberstadt, Ahmed Ahmed, Killer Beaz and Jon Reep.

The show finally began wrapping up Sunday night April 19th as the regularly scheduled weekly SPiFFY SQUiRREL Comedy Show presented the “Bestival of the Festival” showcase featuring stand-out performances from crowd favorites Mary Jay Berger, Brad Edwards, Carter Glascock, Monty Mitchell, Jonathan Craig, Brett Cantrell, Narado Moore, Joe Kelley and Jim Seward.

After an amazing set where Narado Moore improvised unflattering impressions of lackluster out of town guest comics, the marathon show came to an end early Monday morning, April 20th with show producers DJ Buckley and Chad Riden doing their final sets. “I want to do this again next year,” said Riden. “I think we have to. I want to break our own record by five minutes just to show that we know how silly and pointless this all is.” As the official clock neared 4:20 a.m., Riden thanked show co-producers Mary Jay Berger, Ben Jones and DJ Buckley, along with Zanies Comedy Clubs’ Brian Dorfman, comedian Nate Bargatze, the Wild West Comedy Festival, Outback Concerts, the dozens of volunteers who staffed the event, the comics who performed and everybody who was in attendance to a standing ovation before hopping off stage.

Nashville StandUp is a 509(a)(2) Public Charity with a mission to cultivate and promote middle Tennessee’s growing stand up comedy scene by supporting the Nashville-based comedians that help make the Music City a great place to see live comedy.
